On my recent trip to Nashville, we ate in the Oak Bar at the Capitol Grille twice. I was impressed with the Brunswick stew, a superbly smoky pork flavored dish in a tasty tomato based broth. The lima beans were tiny and didn't ruin the dish for me (I hate lima beans and definitely would not have ordered it if I knew they were there, I was surprised to enjoy them). The next day, the Pulled Pork sliders were less impressive, with only one BBQ sauce instead of the advertised three sauces.
I like what they are doing here, heirloom Southern food that is not overly heavy or overly fried with high quality farm produce and meats. I'd recommend it, but you might want to stray off the happy hour menu and order from the regular bar menu when in the Oak Bar.
